|Frosty fallen leaf|
Outside it was only 27 F (-2 C), and I saw that my pretty front porch flowers succumbed during the night. Our first hard frost. It was going to be a challenge to dress correctly for the walk with the ladies this morning, but I'm proud to say I chose layers and was successful in keeping warm during our 6.5-mile walk. In fact, by the time I reached our high point, I was able to take off one layer. I consider it a challenge not to dress too warmly when exercising, but warm enough to keep myself from being cold. My hands took the longest to warm up in my gloves. Mittens would have been a better idea.
We've got even colder weather on the way, with a chance for us to experience a little of the "S" word next week. Until then, though, we'll just have clear, cold, brisk days, which nobody minds. Any time the sun shines, there are plenty of smiles to go around.
And to add to the smiles (at least I hope), I found this on Facebook this morning. I knew immediately what Pooh and Piglet were speaking to each other:

I know, it's obscure. But it was so original I felt I had to share it. BTW, the potluck gathering last Thursday was a success, although I was so tired that I snuck out early. Who's surprised?
